Prof. Goldenberg has been a faculty member at the University of Utah since 1985.  He received an A.B. degree, with majors in chemistry and mathematics, from Whitman College and his Ph.D. in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests lie at the intersections of biology, chemistry and physics, particularly in the areas of protein folding, structure, dynamics and function. The courses that he teaches, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, are similarly interdisciplinary.  In addition to research publications, he has recently published "Principles of NMR Spectroscopy: An Illustrated Guide" (University Science Books), a text book for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. He has served on the Executive Committee of the Protein Society, the Board of Directors of the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology (FASEB) and on grant review panels for the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
